I was doing a search for a few cars Ive been interested in owning and had a few questions about them. Looks like the scion iq is a dead end and there were a few fit sport threads out there.

The drivetrain on the base and sport Fits is identical. The manual gear ratios are all stupid. It works for me because I rarely have it on the highway and my daily commute tops out at 55 mph limit (and I don't even go that fast).

I hauled a Lazy-boy chair in mine last month, with ease. I've had 2 hay bales in the back with all the seats up.

If the tranny is the same, what did they change between the 2? Just the engine size and vtec engagement? I notice some years you can get both auto or stick, while others its stick only.

The Sport gets a pretty spoiler, pretty wheels, audio controls on the steering wheel...

Shopping for new ones, I couldn't talk myself into a Sport even though I wanted the audio controls on the steering wheel. That was the only difference that I cared about and I didn't care enough to pay the difference.

Thats pretty much why I got the ex insight. It came with extra speakers, alloy wheels, heated mirror with turn signals, cruse control, skid control, sport mode with sequential shift and a few other features Ive forgot. Of course the later model came with steering wheel controls for the radio where that was only available for the nav model.

I sat in a Fit sport and Civic Si. The Si my head hit the sunroof, knee hit the dash and it felt smallish. The Fit wasnt like that, nor was the crz. I got to test drive both crz and they were lacking in the performance dept.

The Fit Sport also adds a rear sway bar. I've since upgraded even that.

My insight has a 22mm(SP?) progressive rear sway from an 09 Fit.
